The DADEE program has been made possible by the generous support of our partners Port Waratah Coal Services, Hunter Children’s Research Foundation, Hunter Medical Research Institute and Nimbler Digital.

Port Waratah Coal Services

Port Waratah Coal Services is proud to be an active member of the Newcastle Community and support sustainability and resilience of our community though the Community Investment and Partnership Programme, which delivers $750,000 to the local community each year.

Port Waratah supports a range of different initiatives and programmes which:

  • Deliver value back to the Newcastle community – particularly portside suburbs
  • Address a specific need or opportunity within the community to contribute to the overall sustainability of the region
  • Deliver benefit to many people (not just individuals)
  • Build capacity, skills and/or knowledge with individual and organisations

Between 2013-2015, Port Waratah donated $2.1 million to over 270 initiatives in the Hunter region of NSW.

The Hunter Children's Research Foundation

The Hunter Children's Research Foundation (HCRF) was established in February 1996 to support research at the John Hunter Children's Hospital and since that time has continued to raise much-needed funds for research into children's health issues.

Money raised by HCRF stays in the Hunter to establish and support child health research projects in areas such as asthma, cancer, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, sleep disorders and mental health.

To date, HCRF has raised over $1M for research grants and equipment.

The Hunter Medical Research Institute

The Hunter Medical Research Institute began in 1998 as a bold vision to improve community wellbeing in the Hunter Region and has today evolved into a world-class institute with 1500 medical researchers, students and support staff striving to prevent, treat and defeat a multitude of serious illnesses.

Delivering patient-focused translational research is their major goal, which means seeding start-up studies and fostering a flow of information and innovation back and forth between scientists, clinicians and public health professionals. Attracting top medical specialists and collaborating with other leading institutes and industries helps to fast-track the provision of new and better health solutions.
